About & Pics

Description

Analyse your voice pitch, associated voice gender, & volume in real-time with the ability to record and replay the last 10 seconds. Essentially a voice analyser for transgender, LSVT, and voice therapy patients to help improve the quality of their voice.

This tool is designed to act as a voice recorder/playback/analyser tool but with useful information such as pitch, & volume with resonance and phonetics to be added at a later date. It is mostly intended for use as part of voice therapy, and users should be aiming to use the tool for about 5 minutes a day over several months.

=Voice Pitch Exercises=
Voice pitch is one of the biggest indicators of a speakers gender!
1. Select the Pitch tab, and in a relatively quiet room, read the short sentence at the bottom of the screen.
2. Your pitch analysis will be shown on screen in real time.
3. Clicking the replay button will replay the last 10 seconds of your voice.
4. Listen, does your voice pitch sound right?
5. Try and repeat this process for at least 5 minutes every few days.

MTF patients should aim for a voice pitch towards the low end of the female spectrum and avoid higher pitches in the falsetto range.
FTM patients should aim for a voice pitch towards the higher end of the male spectrum but should focus more on volume & resonance

=Voice Volume Exercises=
If you suffer from various illnesses such as parkinsons or make too big a change to your voice pitch, your volume can be reduced.
It is best to go back a few steps in order to regain volume and work on making smaller changes to your voice.
1. Select Volume tab and read the short sentence at the bottom of the screen.
2. The ambient volume of the room will be shown on the screen.
3. Clicking the replay button will replay the last 10 seconds of your voice.
4. Listen, does your voice sound right, was there a noticeable visual difference in volume and was it a similar increase to other people?
5. Try and repeat this process every few days for at least 5 minutes at a time.

=Troubleshooting=
The voice pitch analysis only works in quiet environments and on devices with a relatively good microphones, if you are having problems with pitch detection try removing any phone cases that obscure the microphone or try enabling the noise cancellation mode.

=Random Sentences=
The random sentences are phonetically balanced word combinations designed to be spoken in a single breath in order to help you improve voice transition between phonetic sounds.

-Record & playback without saving files to your device
-Real-time pitch analysis
-Pitch & Gender Charts
-Real-time volume analysis
-Voice Statistics
